  • Knorr Newburg Sauce Replacement Recipe

    I am looking for a recipe to replace the recently discontinued Knorr Newburg sauce. Alternately I would love to find another company that makes a Newburg sauce mix!

    I prefer recipes that call for Sherry, not Brandy or Cognac!

     My family absolutely loves that Newburg sauce, and I finally used my very last packet on Christmas. I did email Knorr to request that they make it again, and I have found a few online importers who carry it, but a recipe would be the best option!

    Thanks ahead of time to anyone with ideas! I am new on here, but look forward to sharing recipes and tips!

  • Re: Knorr Newburg Sauce Replacement Recipe

    Thanks for the recipe.  I have been searching for the Knorr product ever since we moved to Arizona.  I use it over baked Salmon and also in a Shrimp, Crab and Lobster Bisque that I serve on special occassions.

    Knorr discontinued their Newburg sauce and white sauce in those convenient 1.5 oz. packages, but the white is still available in large containers.  I use it a lot, and as a base for low-carb Bearnaise, Hollandaise and Newburg ... start with 2 cups of hot prepared Knorr white sauce, add 2 T sauted chopped onion, 1/2 c dry sherry and 1T tomato paste for color.

  • Re: Knorr Newburg Sauce Replacement Recipe

    My husband and I miss the green Knorr Newburg packets.  I have not seen the white sauce in the larger containers.  Is it dry like the Newburg packet or liquid/paste?  Your recipe sounds like it could result in a Newburg sauce close in taste to the Knorr packets.  What is your assessment?

    I may try it since I have tried many other recipes that can't even come close.  Why did Knorr do this to all of the Newburg lovers out here?


  • Re: Knorr Newburg Sauce Replacement Recipe

    Hi.  I just inherited about five cases of Knorr Newburg Sauce.  Each case has 80 packets I think.  Now thatsalota sauce.  Can send.  email me at if interested.

  • Re: Knorr Newburg Sauce Replacement Recipe


    I feel your pain--I, too, lament the loss of Knorr's Newburg Sauce. I can't for the life of me figure out why they--and everyone else who ever carried a similar product, as far as I know--decided there wasn't enough of a demand to continue carrying it. It was by far one of their best (and that's saying a lot). I guess there's no accounting for taste, huh? Ah, well...

    Anyway, until I find an alternative on the market, I've been improvising with their Hollandaise mix, mixing just enough tomato paste or V-8 juice to color it without altering the flavor, and adding sherry to taste. It ain't perfect, not by a long shot, but it's actually not a bad "make-do" solution until somebody out there decides to "cowboy-up" and fill in the void in the marketplace.

    I hope this helps.

    Bon appetit,

  • Re: Knorr Newburg Sauce Replacement Recipe

    Still have any sauce left??

  • Re: Knorr Newburg Sauce Replacement Recipe

     Got any left? I'm lost without it! I've emailed and begged Knorr to start producing it again to no avail. It was the secret to my success.

  • Re: Knorr Newburg Sauce Replacement Recipe

    I was unable to open the lind to white sauce or cream sauce could you please type that out too....thank you so much...I searched all over town for knorr newburg sauce today only to come home and find this.  I'm glad it was here.


    Thank you.

     I too have searched for a good newburg sauce since the packets were discontinued. This is the closest I have found so far:

    1/2 tsp Old Bay Seafood Seasoning

    1 tsp paprika

    1/2 tsp worcestershire sauce

    2 Tbsp dry sherry

    2 Tbsp heavy cream

    Melt butter in saucepan, add flour to form a roux.  Slowly wisk in water and Redi-Base until blended.  Add Old Bay Seasoning, paprika and W sauce, bring to boil.  Remove from heat, add sherry and cream.  Serve.    Makes 2 1/2 cups
